The Rosetta Stone was discovered #‪onthisday‬ in 1799 – key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs!

The same inscription is written in three different scripts: Greek, hieroglyphs and demotic Egyptian. 1,400 years after hieroglyphs had gone out of use, scholars were able to use the Greek inscription on this stone as the key to decipher them. The inscription is a decree that affirms the royal cult of the 13-year-old Ptolemy V on the first anniversary of his coronation in 196 BC.

Scientists from Sweden and the UK have analysed the data produced by the three most common software packages for scanning the brain, and have found that the data is so unreliable – due to bugs in the software – that 15 years' worth of fMRI brain research could be invalidated.
Up to 70% of fMRI analyses produce at least one false positive, challenging the validity of over 40,000 studies.

The busybodies of happines. Kind of cute and touching in their steadfast yet fragile walk.

Reflections on machine learning capabilities #AI
 
Is machine learning a rocket or a hot air balloon?

"Here’s an analogy for thinking about artificial intelligence from from Hubert Dreyfus, who compares AI research in the 1950s and 1960s to “tree climbing with one’s eyes on the moon.” In this analogy, creating human-level general intelligence is like landing on the moon. The increasing intelligence of artificial systems is like the decreasing distance between an astronaut and the moon. Simply measuring the increase in intelligence/the decrease in distance is a crude way to predict progress. Certain AI technologies, like certain transportation technologies, will have a lot of initial progress but run up against fundamental limits.

A hot air balloon, for example, can decrease the distance between an astronaut and the moon, but for fundamental engineering reasons (e.g. balloons move too slowly, there’s no air in space) hot air balloons can’t make it past Earth’s atmosphere. No amount of improvement in hot air balloon technology could ever surmount these engineering problems; the only way to make progress is to try a new technology, like rockets. Any AI technology, such as machine learning, that rapidly and steadily increases the intelligence of AI systems might have the right fundamental engineering properties to progress all the way to human-level intelligence, or it might hit an intelligence ceiling that can’t be surpassed with that AI technology."

Definitely. I shared the article to bookmark it - am actually more open and optimistic concerning AI than the Dreyfus-paradigm suggests
